The Museum of Carpet - three workshops for adults coming in 2019!

Coming in 2019 (March, August and December) will be three workshops to the wonderful Museum of Carpet in Kidderminster! Kidderminster is a place close to my heart, as is the museum too as my degree work is in their archives and available for students to use to research and be inspired by! I trained at Kidderminster Collage/Wolverhampton University on the Carpet and Related Textiles degree course and went on to win the New Designer of the Year for Flooring many moons ago when I graduated in 1990! So to run these workshops will be extra special.

Watch this space for dates!

Paper Poppies etc - adults workshop at Norfolk Creative Arts LTD

I had a wonderful first time delivering a creative workshop for adults at Norfolk Creative Arts Ltd near Kings Lynn at the end of September. It was an all day workshop so wonderful to have the time to really teach the techniques of paper cutting and layered reverse collage and have time to use this learning towards other, more personally designed pieces. It's a fabulous place. Light airy classroom to work in with loads of space to spread out and Hans Rahn laid on a delicious meal and wonderful cakes/cookies through the day. The dining room has these wonderful large wooden tables, beautifully laid out with grey and cream plates and napkins and we ate a delicious veggie lasagne and chattered away. It felt a wonderfully creative and social day.

I have moved!

The really big news is that I have moved to the beautiful village of Bottesford in the Vale of Belvoir!

I moved to Letchworth Garden City back in 1992 and then just over the border into Arlesey for the last three years so it really is a big move and exciting times! A whole new chapter is about to start. I'll be nearer family and children at university and looking forward hugely to all the wonderful places on my doorstep to discover! I will be able to do more workshops in a wider area now too. I will still be making pieces based on my love of Cambridge and Letchworth so watch this space for upcoming new work......
